Rachel Robinson Managing Director at Sheffield-based event-marketing specialists Syrac Inspirations, held a companywide workshop this week inspired by Gary Vaynerchuk’s “the ultimate advice for every twenty-year-old” video.
Gary Vaynerchuk is a four-time New York Times bestselling author, speaker and internationally recognised Internet personality. His YouTube channel has over 730,000 subscribers and is one of Ms Robinson’s favourite channels on the platform. One of the uploads on the Ask Gary Vee show, called “The Ultimate Advice For Every 20 Year Old” captured the attention of Ms Robinson and inspired the business owner to use the video as the subject of a company workshop.
In the video, Vaynerchuk calls a recent graduate who is attempting to build her own business and brand and is looking for advice from the successful entrepreneur. The caller, Taylor was a 22-year-old recent graduate who was frustrated with her current position, feeling like her career was stagnant. Vaynerchuk argued; macro patience, micro speed and the need to be patient, proclaiming that success won’t come overnight. The caller mentioned that she felt like she was failing compared to other millennials who were achieving their goals which led Vaynerchuk to state the following; “Every second you spend thinking about what somebody else has, is taking away from time that you can create something for yourself.”
One of the biggest takeaways from the video for Syrac Inspirations was enjoying the process of the journey to success. “Slow and steady wins the race, you’re only competing with yourself,” commented Vaynerchuk.
Now in graduate season, Ms Robinson recognises that it is very much a transition period for those looking to break into the business world and it can be a daunting prospect for graduates looking to take the first step onto the career ladder. The firm currently work with a number of graduates and Ms Robinson is keen to coach, mentor and nurture the talented and ambitious individuals they work with to help them achieve their goals, reach their potential and simultaneously take Syrac Inspirations forward.
“I would recommend that every recent graduate takes the time to watch the video so they can put into perspective their hopes and desires versus the reality of achieving success,” commented Ms Robinson.
